Google Dianne Hackborn has posted on Google+ about some common myths regarding Android's graphics rendering pipeline, and we have a rebuttal to that one as well. Interesting stuff, but I want to talk abut something related: Android's gaphics performance. I'm hearing a lot of talk about how Android's effects and transitions and such aren't as smooth as those on iOS, but on my Galaxy SII, everything is super-smooth. So, I'm wondering - what's it like for you?

I haven't noticed any lag, or it's very little irregularly, unless something has crashed, which happens more frequently then I'd like. on my Samsung Captivate (AT&T's Galaxy S) with Android 2.2.

I can't tell a difference between my wife's iPad, the iPhones I support, and Android on my phone. My wife can't tell a difference between her iPad and her Captivate. Of course, this as long as live wallpapers aren't running.

I was playing with an Asus Transformer demo with a live map as it's background, and it was painfully slow. My wife's Captivate had a little lag until I turned off the live wallpaper.

As an aside, I hate animations in operating systems. Turning them off is usually the first thing I do, but Android has found a nice balance.
